Rates holds terrible secrets rooted in blood and greed As Peter’s grasp on her heart tightens she struggles to remember where she came from and begins to suspect that this island of dreams and the boy who desires her have the potential to transform into an everlasting nightma. Wendy Darling took me by surprise I had a hard time rating this book because it felt somewhere between three and four stars It was uite good but it took me a while to start getting into the book and really liking it It actually wasn't until the last couple of chapters that I really started getting invested with the story and WendyI've read and seen lots of retellings around Peter Pan and Neverland Most retellings don't really portrait her as a nice person so that's one way this book makes it uniue The story starts out pretty much the same as the classic tale of Peter Pan we all know with small changes here and there but also some bigger ones that make it a true retelling Like I said before for most of the book I wasn't liking it all that much at first It had a very strong prologue but it went a little downhill from there I guess there wasn't much happening and I was getting a wee bit bored Also at that point I wasn't liking Wendy all that much She's nice and all but that's where it stopped for me But then the story started getting uite chilling when Peter shows his true colors to Wendy I thought this was actually a really great turn of events even though it felt all pretty dark But it was there that I started caring much for Wendy and realizing how she truly is a great heroineWendy's brother Michael was adorable but John annoyed the hell out of me I get that being in Neverland changes people but he was so disrespectful towards his sister The Lost Boys were something else I really liked some of them very much Especially Abbott He was a character I wanted to learn about And there was Tink I'm not sure what to say about her except that I really felt sorry for what Peter made her go through and how he treated her The writing was absolutely wonderful I really have nothing negative to say about that It was at times really beautiful and even lyrical Basically perfect for a Neverland story And that ending Holy crap I need the seuel right now So yeah be prepared for a cliffhanger

Most people probably know the Peter Pan story whether or not they have read the book He is such a famous figure and there are a couple of movies out there I read the book in my teens so my memory of the book is well not that good but I have seen movies so I think I know the story uite wellI must admit that the cover was one of the reasons for that made me reuest the book that and it seemed to be a much darker story I was a bit wary about it being YA since I really don't like reading YA that much but it turned out that this story was a bit darker than I expect from YA books But it could be that I just haven't read the right YA booksThis retelling is truly darker than the original story The Lost boys and Peter Pan and their adventures with the pirates are much lethal Here we have boys that really fight pirates that stab them with swords etc and Peter Pan is really adapt to killing pirates And the pirates kill Lost boys as well I mean one of the Lost Boys gets his throat cutI was a bit annoyed with John Wendy's brother He was just awfully rude and spiteful throughout the book towards Wendy I just didn't like him very much but Wendy's little brother Michael was sweet Then there is Peter Pan He is still very much full of himself and frankly not a very nice person Since this is a YA is Wendy's relationship with Peter Pan a bit mature Well no sex but much kissing and stuffBut I had some problem connecting with the story It was good I liked the retelling and I liked the darker tone I just really didn't fully enjoy the book It felt that something was missing I have a suspicious feeling that the next book in this series will be better since one very special person didn't make an appearance until the very last minute And that makes me eager to read the next book since I think that person's present will make the story intriguingThanks to SparkPress and NetGalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
